Women have some specific disadvantages when they are in public. It is difficult to acknowledge this, but having full awareness that you have a greater chance than a man does of being victimized in public helps you to make bold steps to address this issue and protect yourself. While none of us want to believe that we may have to defend ourselves against a harasser, attacker, or other aggressive offender, it is important for all of us to defend ourselves. Women have even more of a reason to do so. Thankfully, Alpharetta self-defense for women can be taught with close instruction, detailed demonstration, practice, and complex techniques in a formal setting.
If you are a woman or are concerned about the safety of your female friend, wife, girlfriend, sister, or daughter, then take note of the following reasons why women must know some form of self-defense such as karate:
1. Women Are Targeted
WHAT TO DO IF YOUR CHILD IS BEING BULLIED
Posted: December 09, 2015
It is never easy to see your child going through major life struggles. Sadly, one of the most common issues facing young children at school is bullying. The negative physical and emotional repercussions of this kind of treatment can lead to lasting harm. We at Karate Atlanta have some tips for you if your child is being bullied.
Get All the Facts
With the term “bullying” being thrown around so much, some people are accused of being bullies who really aren’t. If your child claims to have been bullied, make sure to get all the facts of the situation. Find out if your child had shown any signs of aggression before the bad behavior began. Find out who was involved and what caused the altercations. The more you know about the situation, the better equipped you will be to handle it in a healthy way.
THE BEAUTY OF MARTIAL ARTS
Posted: December 08, 2015
The Martial Arts are widely know for their strength and discipline, but here at Karate Atlanta, we like to make sure our students know about the beauty of these skills as well. When you take Martial Arts classes in Alpharetta, you will be enjoying the beauty of movement, the beauty of discipline, the beauty of a new culture, and the beauty of deeper bonds.
The Beauty of Movement
There is something in the movements of Karate and Taekwondo that are inherently beautiful. Of course, they are strong and impressive. These are movements of battle and war and they are meant to be intimidating, which they are. The beauty of the movements comes in seeing how much discipline and control it takes to complete these moves.
TAEKWONDO AT EVERY AGE
Posted: December 07, 2015
When you think of Taekwondo classes, your first thought may be of classes for young children. While we do love teaching young kids the beauty and strength of this ancient form of martial arts, we are on a mission to share these skills with people of all ages. Each age group will learn the same skills in their classes, but we have noticed that students of different ages tend to get something different from the lessons.
LEARNING MARTIAL ARTS AS AN ADULT

Many adults struggle to find a good exercise regimen that really fits their personality and desires. You can know the importance of staying active and still have a hard time following the advice. If this describes you, we at Karate Atlanta have a solution: martial arts classes for adults. Taking one of these classes will allow you to stay fit and healthy, gain new skills, work on your discipline, and meet some new people.
Stay Fit and Healthy
It is hard not to be in shape when you are put through training multiple times a week. We have karate classes for adults in Marietta that move faster than those for children. We are also sensitive to certain needs or weaknesses you may have, and we are happy to work with these conditions. Kicking, bending, punching, stretching, and constantly moving will help you to not only shed unwelcome pounds, but gain some very welcome muscle as well.
